Free-agent receiver Dede Westbrook plans to sign a one-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings, reports NFL reporter Josina Anderson.

Anderson reported Friday that the former Jacksonville Jaguars wideout was planning to visit the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday but was meeting with the Vikings at the time.

Westbrook, a 2017 fourth-round pick, recorded 1,716 yards and nine touchdowns in his first three seasons but was limited to one catch in two games in 2020.

The 27-year-old tore his ACL in Week 7 after Jacksonville made him a healthy scratch for five of its first six games of the campaign.

He's expected to be ready for football drills in August.

Should he sign with the Vikings, Westbrook will join a receiving corps headlined by Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen and supported by Olabisi Johnson, Chad Beebe, and 2021 fifth-round pick Ihmir Smith-Marsette.
